OBX Restaurant Week Highlights Upcoming Events

Fall is upon us here on the Outer Banks, but the event calendar has not slowed down one bit.

A quick mention about tomorrow's BrewTag at the Event Site in Nags Head. The object is to make a mini keg fly. Should be a lot of fun. Check it out.

The big week long event coming up is the OBX Restaurant Week October 30-November 7. Ok, it's more than a week, but with so many restaurants participating the extra two day are needed

Twenty-two area restaurants from Duck to Rodanthe are offering three course dinners over the nine days of the event. Prices seem to be either $20 or $35 depending on what is being served and who is preparing it.

This is a great way to check out some of the finest eateries on the Outer Banks and have some fun exploring the towns and villages of the area.

There are other events coming up as well. Here's a quick overview.

26th Annual Artrageous, October 31

Rec Park, Kill Devil Hills

Geared toward kids, Artrageous is a great time for every one to smile giggle and laugh.

Originally scheduled for late September, the Halloween date is looking like perfect weather will be on tap. A Dare County Arts Council event, this is one for the whole family.

Outer Banks Marathon

November 6-8

With a 5K, 8K, half marathon and the marathon, Outer Banks Marathon weekend has something for every runner.

The Marathon course is beautiful, starting on the Woods Road in Kitty Hawk and running through Kitty Hawk Woods on its way to the Wright Brothers Monument, Nags Head Woods and Jockeys Ridge before ending in Manteo.

Outer Banks Veterans Writing Project

November 15, 16

Ron Capps, the founder of the Veterans Writing Project, witnessed the horrors of war firsthand. To heal himself he began to write. He has taken his skills and taught others how to put their experiences on paper through the Veteran's Writing Project which he founded.

A two day event, it is free to any veteran who served in any branch of the military. Through sponsorship the DCAC offers the course free of charge to 25 veterans every year.

For more information, contact Chris Sawin at the DCAC at 252-473-5558.
